“Only God can keep you from falling and make you pure and joyful in his glorious presence. Before time began and now and forevermore, God is worthy of glory, honor, power, and authority. Amen.” (Jude 1: 24-25, Contemporary English Version)
You are safe. You are secure in God’s keeping because His Almighty hand holds you above the threats of mortal sense and the fears which attend a belief in material life, time, and limits.
Human will-power, physical force, and luck, are not able to keep us thriving, happy, free, protected, pure. It is only God that has this power, because it is His presence and love that assures our well-being. Because He is the Mind, the Life, the Truth, God’s creation is under His control. Knowing this and obeying Him—acknowledging and resting in His law, His authority—we find ourselves to be sheltered from fear, failure, and grief. We are held in God’s arms that both comfort us and protect us.
The first and final Word is God, good. He made us and we abide in Him. In this heaven of His consciousness, His Love, we remain as we are and always have been—the very loved of God—no matter what the senses might want to accuse us of. We cannot fall from grace for God never lost a single idea or let it become less perfect than the one that He made and eternally loves.
